unlawful terms

Unlawful terms are provisions that cannot legally be included in an enterprise agreement.

These are terms or clauses in an enterprise agreement that violate employment law. For instance, a term that discriminates against employees based on their race or gender would be unlawful. Similarly, clauses that deny employees their legal rights, like the right to take leave, are also not permissible. Such terms are invalid and unenforceable because they go against the legal standards set for fair and equitable employment practices.
